I was really hoping for snow in the PNW after I got home from Christmas break but hit up White Pass on Monday and it was very dry, not even snow on the way up to the slopes until about 1/2 from mountain (usually starts getting snowy 3 or 4 miles from mountain).

It was closed today due to the high wind gusts. Hopefully it means it'll be bringing in a big system for some fresh powder this weekend.

Out East we would want a negative index on the NAO. We dont have that right now. Weathermen say it can shift at any time but sometimes it sticks in one direction for a long period of time.

Welcome to the North Atlantic Oscillation www-page

That site explains what I've heard. Fingers crossed.

I have just gone to Niseko (Hokkaido, Japan) for a week again. It was snowing heavily non-stop everyday. And due to the exchange rate, the crowds were very minimal

Surely Hokkaido is the best in the world for snow quality and snow quantity. Unbelievable.

Revy has about a 16.5' base right now and they are getting dumped on pretty consistently. which is good as I will be there in a week :-)

Hey Chupa, you have "Mt. Revelstoke", is it not "Mt. Mackenzie"?

Here in Banff! Snowing right now actually. Plus our temps mean we haven't had rain on any of the resorts.

So many runs so little time.

16.5' YTD snowfall... not base Base depth is like 180cm (6')
Mt. Revelstoke is another mountian adjacent to town. There is a goverment operated snow-pillow on it, at a slightly lower, but similar elevation to RMR's snow-plot and has been providing data at that particular location since 1992. It is directly north, across the highway, from RMR (Mt.Mackenzie).
Mt.Revelstoke is a National Park, has a road to the top, and has the historic Revelstoke ski jump site on it's lower flanks.
Here's a pic I snapped up on Mt.Revelstoke, looking South at RMR into North/Greely Bowl...

and while I'm at it here's a rope swing just up the road (taken the same day)
